When Cicadas Sing

19 March 2008
Vol. 8, No. 1

My father sings in German when he does the dishes;

his wedding ring clicking on glass cups and plates,

a metronome keeping a beat for some quiet counterpoint,

muted by the suds, the soapy water, and the singing.

42opus is an online magazine of the literary arts.
